T HROUGH the hard work of Coach Henry Thayer and the return of four major lettermen, Seneca was able to capture
the league 2 championship. The four boys were: Jim Garbacz, a pitcher, Jack Halldin, a second baseman, Art
Glenn, an outfielder, and Norm Pyzikiewicz, a shortstop. lt was the strong left arm of Jim Garbacz and the big bat
of Norm Pyzikiewicz that enabled us to win all six games in regular season play. After blanking our first two opponents,
South Park and East, we managed to put our hits together and defeat Technical, Burgard, Kensington, and Bennett all
by one run. Our next contest was against McKinley the league I champs, in Offerman Stadium. ln the championship
game McKinley defeated us 5 to 0.
Norm Pyzikiewicz, our shortstop, was honored by being selected on the BUFFALO EVENING NEWS All-High
Team. Jim Garbacz was placed on the second team while Jack Halldin, Art Glenn and Ron Kolb received honorable
mention. We, at Seneca, wish to congratulate Mr. Thayer and his team for their Fine showing during the 1953 baseball

WHEN track practice opened last April, the team's chances looked ver dim because it had only eight returning
lettermen: Ass't. Coach, Jerry Klier, Carl Cordovano, Richard Ebersolle, Alan Littrell, Jim McEwen, Carmen
Parisi, Roland Shelton, and Frank Watson. Through the combined efforts of our able coach, Mr. Boehmer, and the
new boys, the places on the team that were vacated through graduation were filled with competent boys.
After rolling to easy victories over Emerson and McKinley, the boys thought they had the title "in the bag," but
the up-and-coming Burgard team gave them a different attitude by coming through with a 49-49 tie. Then the boys
really buckled down. When the final tabulations of the All-Vocational Meet were made, they found themselves once
We were represented on the all-vocational team by Alan Littrell in the 1f2 mile run, Carmen Parisi in the mile
run, and Jim McEwen in the 1f4 mile run.
